What is Health Insurance

Good health refers to being in a condition of complete mental, physical and social well-being but not mere absence of illness. It is possible to get health insurance cover when leading a healthy life. But getting a comprehensive health insurance cover may be denied for your near and dear ones on acquiring some illness. Certain medical emergencies are difficult to foresee or prevent.

Health insurance plans cover medical expenses that arise due to illnesses, accidents and include most of medical or surgical treatments to restore good health.
